ISO 27001 FAQ


 

What is ISO 27001?


ISO/IEC 27001 is an international information security standard published by the International Organization for Standardization (ISO) and the International Electrotechnical Commission (IEC). The standard provides a benchmark for organizations to establish, implement, maintain and improve the information security management system (ISMS).
 

Why Should a Company Adopt ISO 27001?


By adopting ISO 27001 certification, organizations can:
• Adopt a more flexible and risk driven framework for securing information assets
• Ensure security management is kept up to date with the latest security threats
• Ensure vulnerabilities are identified and addressed to lower business risk
• Demonstrate commitment to securing client’s data which has HUGE MARKETING BENEFITS and BRAND VALUE which inevitably drives more business.
 

Do l need ISO 27001?


The standard is designed for adoption across all types of organizations including enterprises, non-profits and government agencies. The standard is also applicable to companies of all sizes and all industries including healthcare, banking, retail and education.
 

What does ISO 27001 Cover?


Unlike other regulations, ISO/IEC 27001 does not mandate specific information security controls. Instead the standard provided the flexibility that controls required may vary across the wide range of companies that adopt the standard.
 
The information security controls from ISO/IEC 27002 are summarized in annex A to ISO/IEC 27001. Organizations are then free to choose the information security controls that will better address their information risk. Therefore, the key to ensuring adequate selection of applicable controls is to complete an assessment of the company’s information risk – working with a company like ControlCase.
